iy THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, TUESDAY, - MAT 14, 1889. t H r THEYDOOBJEGT City Councils Bevolt Against the Court's Edict. THE JUDGE CEITICISED, And the Forced Eesignations of Members Not Accepted. A JOINT COMMITTEE TO INTERFERE A Political Bomb is Hurled at the Chief of Public Safety. PUSHING PEOJECTS FOR PUBLIC P1RKS & portentous murmur was heard in Com mon Council yesterday afternoon as the members listened to President Holliday reading the resignation of "William Buhl andt, member from the Twenty-sixth ivard, one of the liquor dealers granted license tinder condition that he resign from Coun cils. The murmur broke into audible con versation, the conversation gave way to open comment Mr. Binder jumped to his feet frith this exclamation: "I more the resignation be rejected. I understand it was handed in by force. The people hare a right to choose their own representatives, and sot one man!" Mr. Steggert, of the Twenty-sixth ward, seconded the motion. The Chair The proper motion is to accept, and then Council may adopt the motion or not. Mr. Carnaban I do not like to vote on this question until I see Mr. Ruhlandt. We might do him an injury in refusing to accept. The Chair I know that Mr. Ruhlandt don't think he should remain In Council. Mr. Duncan If we refuse the resignation it only robs the ward of representation, as Mr. Hublandt refuses to serve. THE COUBT ALLUDED TO. Mr. Carr Council should be the jndge of the qualifications of its members and not the judge of the Common Fleas Court. The action of the Court wa3 a surprise to the people. No man has a right to say to another, "You shall sot represent the people on account of your husiness." Mr. Steggert The people of the Twenty Sixth ward had enough faith in Mr. Ruhlandt to elect him to Council when he was in the business he now follows. It is wrong to force him to resign. Mr. Carnahan The Court has no right to re quire this resignation, bat the fact remains that license was granted on that condition. If we reject this resignation we may find Mr. Ruhlandt's license revoked or he may be re insert next year. We must look at this, as it affects Mr. Ruhlandt's interests. I want to know, though, if be desires us to accept, and I will move that action on the resignation be postponed. iVr. Magee I do not believe that the License Court had the right to say to a man, "Your neighbors elected you, but yon shall not repre sent them and carry on the business you have been in for years and which you ask the court to allow you to continue." If being a member of this Council disqualifies you or me or any man from following any walk of life, then it is time for all of us to get out of Council. I do sot believe that it lays in the right of any man to say to another, "You cannot remain in Council." They might say it to a lawyer be cause be practices before the Court, or to a business man because he may have a case be fore the Court It is not right; IT IS 2TOT FADi Mr. Ruhlandt has a right to resign, but in 'this case the resignation don't seem to be volun tary. Mr. Ruhlandt is the oldest member in , point pf .continuous service In this branch. I don't believe that a man who has been returned for nine consecutive years should be told to get out. I understand Mr. Ruhlandt pledged him self to resign, and his word is at stake. It seems to me that if this Council accepts the resignation it should do it with the plain state ment that it thinks it wrong to make such a condition in granting a license. Mr. MacGonnigle I move to accept the res ignation. I do this because I met Mr. Ruhlandt on the street last week and he asked me to do what I could to have his resignation accepted. There is no question about Mr.Ruhlandt being a good Councilman. I suppose Judge White Joels that be gave license to so few men that they would have all they could do to attend to their saloon business. Mr. Carnahan That's the information I -wanted. Mr. Ruhlandt has said he wants to re sign and we might injure him by refusing to accept. If the people of the ward choose to re-elect him and send him back again we will then be the judges, and I don't see how we could refuse his certificate. Mr. Magee Mr. Ruhlandt asked me to vote for his resignation, but I do not think any ac tion should be taken, with a statement from this Council that no power is given to any court to direct a man elected to a seat here to resign. I don't Believe the court did right when it said, "Go out of the liquor business or go out of Council." Mr. Carr The court has no more right to re voke the license of a Councilman than that of any other citizen without a violation of the law. Mr. Duncan I move we refer this matter to a special committee to ascertain the facts in the case. As far as Mr. Ruhlandt is concerned I would like to accommodate him, but as far as we are concerned we are interested m ascer taining who are the judges of the qualifications of our members. Mr. Duncan's motion was adopted. A POLITICAL sensation; Mr. Ferguson offered the following: Besolved, That the Chief of the Department of Public Safety be and he Is Hereby requested to report to Councils, at their next regular meeting, bow many policemen, firemen and other employes ot his department were employed doing political work during the day of February 10, 1S89, and re ceived full pay for that day from the city. .Besolved, That the Chief of the Department of Public Safety be and he Is hereby requested to furnish Councils, at their next regular meetlug, "with snch knowledge or Information as he may have In regard to an assessment being made upon the employes of the police, fire and other depart ments under the control and management of the Department of Public bafety and which was paid cut of their pay for the month of January. Also, tbe amount of said assessment, and whether or not Eaid fund was used for political purposes at the last city election. Mr. Ferguson accompanied these with two resolutions relating to the Department of Pub lic Works. When he offered them some of the members who are usually interested in matters of this kind were so engaged that the vote was. taken and the resolutions adopted before they were aware of what the fighting members from the Seventeenth ward were up to. PUBLIC PAEK PEOJECTS. Mr. MacGonnigle offered a resolution for a special committee on parks, to serve d unrig the year, to consist of three Common and two Select Councilmen, in conjunction with the Presidents of both branches. This committee is to have charge of all legislation in reference to public parks and public squares. The reso lution was adopted. Messrs. MacGonnigle. Carnahan and Magee were appointed on behalf of Common Council, and Messrs. Lambie and Seating in Select. Chief Bigelow. of the Department of Public Works, presented a communication on the park question, as follows: 1 wish to call attention to the largely growing -nonulationofourcltv. and the desire on tbe nart ot the citizens for public parks. Tbe business center of tbe city is rapidly spreading out and driving the downtown population Into closer auarters, and the need of a public breathing place Is very apparent, and I think this is the proper time for the city to take action on this subject and prepare for tbe laying out or public parks. In tbeTwentv-second ward there are about 300 acres of beautiful park land belonging to tbe bchenley estate, -which I think could be purchased at a reasonable price, and tbe probabilities are that part of the tract could be secured as a gift. Therefore I would request that a Committee on Parks be appointed, that proper action may be taken on the matter. I would also suggest that a representative man be appointed to visit En gland to confer -with Mrs. Bchenley. Your attention Is also called to that part or tbe Allegheny wharf lying between tne Exposition building and the Sixth street bridge. Dnrlugtlie past weeK all tne debris nas oeen reinovea, ana there seems to be a general desire on tbe part of tbe public that this tract of land be set ask public that this tract of land be set aside for park k purposes. Tbe laying out of the park will i tue cuj :ltr little or nothlnr. as the revenue de- titcu irom dumping privileges wm almost pay an expenses. I have had otters from prominent citi zens to donate trees and shruhberv and also an offer from the Husky estate to erect a large foun tain In the center of the park. Iu view of tbe above I would ask that an ordi nance be passed immediately making that part of she wharf a pubUc park It was referred to the Committee on Parks. Ordinances were introduced setting aside the ground around the Hlland reservoir as "Hiland Park," and setting aside the Alle gheny wharf from Third street to Sixth street as "Block House Park." These were referred. SPOILING A PABK SITE. Mr. Magce offered a resolution extending the time of completing the Second Avenue Passen ger Railway to Market street to one year from July 1. Passed. Mr. Bigham, from the Committee on Public Works, presented an ordinance for paving Wylie avenue between the car tracks and curbs from High street to Fulton street. Mr. Duncan made a hard fight to have the paving extended to Herron avenue, but failed, and the ordinance nassed. Mr. Bigham also presented an ordinance granting to the Central Board of Education a strip 30x360 feet along the top of the Bedford avenue basin, on which to erect a janitor's building. Chief Blgelow approved it Ho said be had been given $5,000 to turn the reservoir into a park, and the janitor's house would spoil it. He didn't want shirts hanging in the park on wash days. The janitor gets as much money as the professor at tho High School, and be sug gested that the janitor do like the prof essor, rent a house to live In. The document was laid over until next week. Tho following important ordinances were in troduced: Widening and opening Diamond street to a width of 60 teet from Smithfleld street through the market honses; modifying the contract with the East End Electric Light Company; granting the Pittsburg, Oakland and East Liberty Railway the right to lay a track along Atwood, Boquet, Frazier, ward and Bemple streets, a loop line, and to use either horses or cable as a motive power; a supple ment to ordinance granting the Pittsburg. Knoxville and St. Clair Railway the right of way. THE COUET'S CHAMPION. Sir. Warmcastle Defend tbe Judge In Se lect Council Ho la Unsuccessful Res Isnatloni Go to a Committee. In Select Council also the license question was discussed. When the resignation of James Getty, Jr., as Councilman of the Second ward, was read Mr. "Warmcastle moved that it be accepted, but after the vote had been partially taken Mr. Robertson arose, and securing permission of the Chair, entered his protest against such action by offer ing a motion to refer the resignation of Mr. Getty and others to a special committee. Mr. Robertson made a strong plea against accept ing these resignations too quickly. He said: "this is the first time in its history Pittsburg Councils have been called upon to accept the resignation of a member at tbe dictum of the Court, and why it should be necessary for a man to resign an honorable position, to which he was elected by his neighbors, who, above all, know the value, integrity and worth of the man, is beyond my comprehension. Tbe Court has intimated that a saloon kept by a Council man is tbe place where all kinds of wicked jobs are set up and intrigues entered into. This is onlv a supposition, and a very unfair one at that Is there a member of this nubllobody who would tolerate the belief that Mr. Getty or Mr. O'Neill would be guilty of doing anything that was not for tbe best interestof theDeoclef I think not We all know that James Getty has always been the people's champion. Why the Court should debar the people from the services of such men I cannot understand. GOOD MEN WANTED. "One of the most important features of the Brooks law is that good, moral men only shall be licensed. It seemed to me that a man who has been elected and re-elected by the people of this ward to fill an honorary position, such as a member of Councils, can have no higher certificate of character than this, and instead of militating against should be one of the strongest points in favor of him in his applica tion for license. I am surprised that so learned a Judge should, by his construction of the law, feel compelled to decide that the business of selling liquors was incompatible with the posi tion of a Councilman of the city, and I am at a loss to know whether the Court means to re flect on the saloon or on the city Councils. When Judges will thus construe our laws we have little to assure us that some other Judge, less learned, will not decide that some other branch of business in which a member of this body may be engaged, is also incompatible with the position of Councilman and compel him to resign. My motion is Intended to clace this matter in the hands of a committee, which will endeavor to see if there is no other way out of it without resigning." Mr. Warm castle immediatelyarose and asked why tbe motion already voted on should sot be allowed to pass. He thought that as Mr. Getty had tendered bis resignation in good faith it should be accepted promptly and not referred and held back, for that would no doubt en danger his license and his business. WHEEE THET DIEFEE. Mr. Robertson replied that Mr. Getty had already complied with the requirements of the Court and tbe matter was now the business of Councils. He wanted tbe special committee appointed so that they might hit upon some plan whereby the gentlemen might be allowed to keep their licenses and also retain their seats in Council. Mr. Warmcastle said that was not right and he would oppose any such motion. Councils were not supposed to know what stress these men were under when they presented their resignations, and it was the place of Councils to accept them promptly. Councils bad no ground to stand upon in defying the Court in such manner. It was his opinion that the resignations should be accepted promptly, and the Ma or should then proclaim an election for men to take their places so that the wards they represent should bave new members in Council at tbe earliest moment possible. Tho resignations were voluntary and Councils had no nght to question them. Mr. Robertson took issue on the latter prop osition, and said the resignations were not vol untarily made. They were made under com pulsion, and Councils had a right to determine whether the Court could compel a member to resign his position in order to retain his license. Mr. Warmcastle and Dr. Evans both differed on that view of the matter, and the latter stated that if tbe resignations were not promptly accepted be felt very sure it would result in tbe licenses of the parties Interested being revoked. THEY GOT OUT OF IT. The motion to accept the resignations had been recorded, and under President Ford's ruling it was necessary that that motion be re considered. Mr. Warmcastle and Dr. Evans opposed this, and the- yeas and says wero called, with the following result: Yeas, 19; nays. 9: Aves Messrs. .Anderson, Ford, Braun, Cav anaiigh, Collins, Doyle. Gillespie (J. H.). llas lett, Jones, Matthews, Miller, McCord,McKlnley, Perry, Bobertson, BohrLaste, Warren. Williams, ft ilson-19. Nays Messrs. Benz, D. P. Evans, Dr. Evans, FlUlmmnns, Lambie, Nlsbet Paul, French and Warmcastle 9. The resignations of M. C. Dwyer, of the Eighteenth ward, and John O'Neill of the Fifth ward, were then read, and with that of Mr. Getty were referred to a committee of lire, with instructions to report at the next stated meeting. Some difficulty was experienced in securing a committee representing both sides as the vote was taken. The Chair appointed Messrs. Robertson, Doyle, Warmcastle, Lambie and Dr. Evans. The three last named all declined as having voted against the reconsideration of tbe resolution, Mr. Lambie giving an addi tional reason that it would not do the parties interested any good to have him on tho com mittee, because be bad voted sincerely and felt that way. Mr. Nisbet declined to serve on the committee also because he had voted against it and Mr. Williams was put on in his place. Mr. Collins agreed to take Dr. Evans' place en the committee if the chair insisted, and Dr. McCord accepted the place of Mr. Warm castle. An ordinance authorizing the Controller and Treasurer to close up certain accounts with the Delinquent Tax Collector and suspended banks was opposed by Mr. Lambie on tbe ground that it was not a safe proceeding to dis charge tbe credits of tbe city as the bill pro vided, and his motion to postpone action was agreed to. One of tbe most important ordinances pre sented In Select Council was that regulating street parades, processions and other assem- blages, being a copy of an ordinance in force in ew York City. It provides that all parades or processions occupyinc or marchlnir .nn streets, public squares or wharves of tbe city to tho exclusion or interruption of other citizens is forbidden, unless written notice of the object, time, place or route of procession and the character, purpose and officers of tbe same be given by the chief officer of the parade, not less than 21 hours previous to its forming and marching, to the Superintendent of Police. G. A. R. posts, the National Guard and the fire and police forces being excepted. CIRCUHYNTD BY A Ct&STABLE. v Captain Wlshart Will Not Sue the BIJou management Now. Captain "Wisbart, the agent of the Law and Order Society, said yesterday that he intended to enter suit against Manager Gulick, of the Bijou Theater, tor allowing the bouse to bo opened for the sacred concert Sun day evening. He did not know at the time that Constable McClellau, of Alderman Mc Kenna's office, bad entered suit a few minutes after midnight against Mr. Gulick, thereby circumventing Captain Wlshart from claiming a share of the fine of 23 and costs. SUBVIYALOFTHEHT Such Will be the only Solution of Socialistic Agitation, ACCORDING TO AH EMUfEHT DITINB An Interesting lecture on Socialism in Christ IT. E. Church. THE BEST MAN BOUND TO GET Off TOP An address on "Socialism" by the Eev. C. E. Felton, D. D., was embodied in the programme of the weekly entertainment of the Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor at Christ M. E. Church, on Penn avenue last night, and the large audience which had assembled for the occasion paid close attention to the lecture throughout Dr. Felton, after giving a short review of the history of socialism, from the efforts of Xycurgus and the Spartans in Greece down to the modern phases of nihilism and com munism, continued. "There is no doubt that there is an under lying element of dissatisfaction in our society which demands readjustment There is something wrong somewhere, and the v. workings and efforts of socialism are nothing else but the pulsations of a law which is slowly working itself out That it eventually TILL COME BIGHT I have not the least doubt But I do not agree with the elements that are brought into forco by the Socialists, "The Socialist of to-day advances the theory that nature's gifts were given to be equally divided among all men. The Socialist does not allow a man to have private property; he wants everything to belong to the community. Then again, the Socialist is more or less an enemy of established religion, as he is an enemy to all existing social institutions. "Now, lama believer in socialism myself; but 1 bold that the man who has tbe most fit ness to exist has also tbe most right to do so. In that sentence you bave the solutiond what the evolution of socialistic workings amount to. It has been the rule in nature ever since the world has been created; it is so to-day, and it will be the same in the future. The survival of the fittest will be the result Thousands of years ago we bad different plants, different animals and different races oilmen from those we have to-day. Those that could .not keep step with the advance of evolutionary progress remained behind in the race, and the fittest survived. "To-day the white man of America is pander-. ing to the Indian; still he is dying out in spite of it The outcome of this underlying element of dissatisfaction, which is WOBKINO TO GET BIGHT, will be nothing but the triumph of the most competent He will be triumphant he will be victorious, whether he be the man who works at the anviL or he who sits in the Senate. Tbe slow, conversative man will tarry behind, while the progressive genius will advance until he gets to the top of the hill and plants there bis banner ot victory. "And is it right that it should be so? Cer tainly it Is. The competent man should be the survivor, because he has the most right In the battle of life the ignorant has always to give to the intelligent; the weaker always has to (rive wav to the stronger. " iVhat should we do, therefore? Simply this: Seek the best intellectual, moral, physical and social development that you can find. Keep aDreast with tbe demands of progression: make yourself competent for the race, and you will be one of them who has a right to survive; you will be fit "The great fault of modern socialism is a de parture from religions principals; in fact, a great feature of existing socialism is an aliena tion of religion, and most Socialists are either agnostics, materialists or atheists. Now that is the mistake. Were socialism to rest upon and endeavor to get its rights through tho teachings of the Man from Galilee. It would, I bave no doubt, be more successful." ANOTHER INDORSEMENT. East End Peoplo Resolve to Commend Judge White's Coarse. The temperance people of the East End met last evening and indorsed Judge White in the following series of resolutions: Whereas, An honored citizen of this county, who has once and yet again been elevated by the snfTraires ofhls fellow citizens to one of the most important ana responsioie omces iu lueir gut, ii&b been attacked for exercising as his own convic tions or duty dictated through sonnd discretion, vested in him by the law, in reference to the issu ance of licenses tq sell liquor; and Whereas, We believe lht this attack has been dictated br those who were disappointed In the result of their application for license: and Whereas, We look upon this attack as an effort to intimidate the Judiciary and as an effort to work out an unworthy desire for revenge upon Judge White and to hold him to public opprobrium; now belt Resolved, That we have the utmost confidence In the Integrity, honesty and abllltv of Judge White. We believe that he has faithfully, hon estly, conscientiously and fearlessly discharged his duty In the License Court; that we Indorse and approve his course therein, and that we pledge him our full confidence and earnest sup port. Addresses were made bv the Revs. Core, Westphall and Wilson. They highly com mended the Judge's course. TO SETTLE THE STBIKE. A Special Meeting of Stone Contractors Yes terday, A special meeting of the stone contractors who are members bf the Stone Contractor's Associati6n, was held yesterday afternoon In tbe Builder's Exchange. The object of tbe gathering was to discuss the strike of masons, and if possible, devise means for the sttlement of the trouble. The meeting adjourned yesterday without coming to any conclusion. Another meeting will be held at tbe same place at 8.30 o'clock this morning. """A curious scene is presented at some of the buildings where the masons have struck. On the new buildings being erected on tbe site of tbe Wood street disaster, the brick masons are working on the second story on one side of tbe building, while on the Diamond alley side there is very little of the foundations to bo seen above the ground. PKEL1MINAET WORK. Tho Pattern Makers Greet Bach Other and Appoint Committees. Eighteen delegates reported at the pattern makers' meeting in the Seventh Avenue Hotel.

Wheat, of the Knights of Labor, arrived4n the city yesterday morning. He had been in Butler on Saturday, and alter a long con sultation with the officers of D. A. 8, on the condition of affairs here, left for Irwin station, where he addressed a meeting last night Mr. Wheat will be in tho city to-night and address a secret meeting of Knights at their ball on Fifth avenue. The programme has already been published in The Dispatch. This is Mr. Wheat's first visit to Pittsburg, and. strange to say, he does not like the town. "There is an odor of sewer gas, it seems to me," he says, "that is very objectionable to a man who haB lived in tbe great State of Iowa." A Dispatch reporter saw him before he left for Irwin, and asked him how tho order was progressing, uesaia: "The order is in better shape than it has ever been. It is not growing rapidly, but member ship is steadily increasing. I do not like to see any organization growing rap idly. A mushroom growth does not last long. The objectionable (members are being weeded out and the order is now on as firm a footing as it ever was, notwithstand ing tbe fact that it has not as many members. Iamverywell pleased with the condition of affairs m D. A. & Tbe charges against tbe able Master Workman are groundless, and I I am convinced of that fact, but cannot say rmuch on tbe matter until after the trial. I will say this, however, that the persons who are urging the case are sorry they ever mentioned tbe matter, as Master Workman Ross is entirely innocent of any crookedness, and there is no shortage in his accounts. The man who is agitating this thing will find himself in a very bad box before many days. The order is increasing in strength, and will soon be as strong as it ever was, and will have better members than ever before." NOTIFYING THE WITNESSES. Circulars Sent to Those Interested In the Foreign Glass Blowers. The Executive Committee of the Central Trades Council, have sent out the following circular to different persons in the city, whose testimony is wanted at the meeting to morrow evening, when the investigation of the alleged importation of window glass workers will be continued: The Executive Committee were authorized by the Central Trades Council to investigate the al leged importation of the foreign glass workers. nowatJesnnette, Pa. We most respectfully re quest you to be present at the investigation on "Wednesday -evening. May 15, 1889, In K. of L, Hall, 101 fifth avenue, at 8 o'clock. The circular is signed by James 0. Young, Chairman Executive Board of Central Trades Council of Western Pennsylvania, and O, T. Carl in. Secretary Executive Committee. Timothy O'Leary, Jr., of tbe firm of O'Leary Bros. fc Co., window glass workers, is reported as being asked to attend the meeting. lie says it is not his fight, and he will not be drawn into ue trouoie. J. J. Holland, of tbe (general Executive Board, Knights of Labor, who was in the city yesterday, says the matter has not been dis cussed in the general headquarters of the order and he does not think the order, as a body, will interfere in any way. Secretary-Treasurer Laura Powell, in the absence of the District Master Workman, yesterday, saidD. A. 3 has not recognized the matter in any shape or form, and it was not at all likely that they would take it up. ANOTHER MEETING OF MINERS. A Committee Appointed to Arbitrate With tbe Coal Operators. A joint meeting of the delegates of all the Western Pennsylvania miners who are on strike was held yesterday afternoon in Rup ple'sHall. A committee from the operators, composed of F. L. Robbins and Alexander Dempster, was present for the purpose of de termining what the miners intend to do. They discussed the matter with the delegates, but made no propositions in regard to a settlement of the strike. W. T. Lewis, Secretary of theN.P.U., was present ana maae sn aaaress. A number of new arguments as to why the operators could afford to pay the scale price 74 cents all the year were expressed. The representatives from the operators said they would not pay more than what they had agreed upon among themselves 71 for the first six months and 76 for the balance of tbe year. After much discussion on both sides, a com mittee was appointed to wait upon tbe opera tors and ask them what arbitration proposition they could agree upon. The miners claim they will meet the opera tors halfway. When It comes to making over tures or taking the first step to settle the strike, both sides drawofi and wait until some move is made by the other crowd. Another meeting will be held to-day, when it is expected that something may be compromised upon. AGAINST EIGHT-HOUE EULES. Typographical Union Mo. 7 the First to Re fuse to Indorse Ir. The first negative report upon the eight hour law by a labor organization has been made. The reasons given are very good ones, and notwithstanding the fact that every wage-worker would like to see the eight-hour rule adopted by all trades, the members of this organization do not allow their enthusiasm to overrule their conservatism. At the last meet ing of Typographical Union No. 7 the matter was discussed, in order to give the delegations to the annual convention In June an intelli gent idea of how they should vote npon the matter when it came up in due form. At the meeting of No. 7 it was decided that it wouia do impolitic on tne part or the com- Sositors of this city to indorse the measure. No istructlons were given the delegates, but they will be allowed to use their own judgment in tbe matter and be guided by the action of their local nnion. The primary reason for refusing to Indorse tbe law is that it would not be put into effect all over the country. The members of No. 7 say tbe nine-hour law was a disastrous failure two years ago, and there is no hope bat that the eight-hour rule will follow in the wake of its predecessor. MINING ENGINEERS' MEETING. A Programme of tho Annual Gathering to be Held la Colorado. Jacob Reese, of this city, yesterday re ceived a circular from R. "W. Raymond, Secretary of the American Institute of Mining Engineers, requesting him to attend the fifty-fourth meeting of the society, to be held In Colorado beginning Tuesday, June 18. The first three days' session will be held in Denver. From Friday afternoon to Saturday evening will be spent at Pueblo, Sunday at Manltou Springs, Monday en route to Aspen. Tuesday at the latter place, Wednesday will be spent at Glenwood Springs. On Thursday the party will be transferred to narrow gauge cars and taken to Leadvfile up tbe Grand Canon, stopping at the Red Cliff mines. Friday they will be at lieadville, and that evening the party will return to Denver. SKILLED MEN AT DUQTJESNE. Boven of Them Work a Slick Game on the Strikers and Go to Work. At Duquesne yesterday six skilled work men arrived from Bethlehem. On the train they claimed to have known nothing about the strike and said they would go back on the next train, but when they went through the town on their way to tbe works they passed the strikers without noticing them. Twenty-three laborers also went up on the morning train and crossed tbe river from Saltsburg and went to work in tbe mill. The deputies, and especially the officers in charge, are very indignant at the report pub lished to the effect that some of them were drinkinir. Harry Hummel, better Known as "Red Onion," one of the strikers, was arrested yesterday. This makes nine arrests inside of four days. GENEEAL EXECUTIVE BOAEDEES. John Costello Wanted as Umpire la a Ken tacky Coal Strike. General Executive Boarder John Costello of the Knights' of Labor, is in town. He re received a letter yesterday offering a posi tion that not only surprised him, but all the Knights of Labor in this section. There is trouble at the coal mines of the McHenry Coal Company, located at McHenry, Ky. Both sides have agreed to arbitrate the matter, and hare selected their members on tbe arbitration board. This board held a meeting and decided upon John Costello as umpire. Mr. Costello has not yet accepted the invitation to act in the matter, but will likely do so. James J. Holland, of Florida, also a member of tbe General Executive Board, arrived In the city yesterday, and left last night for the West.

HEE ST0ET OP AN INDIAN BDTCHEEI In the death of Mrs. Ann Sutton, of Winebiddle avenue, Lawrenceville loses onejf its early settlers. Her life was a part of the history of that section of the city. It stretched across the lapse of years from that period when but two or three farms broke the immensity of the forests which covered the shores of the Allegheny between old Bayardstown and the site of the Sharps burg bridge, to the present day when the Seventeenth ward alone is the most popu lous in Pittsburg, and several other wards besides are embraced within the territory described. It was marvelous what her memory compassed. An obituary on the fourth page of to-day's Dispatch tells of her sickness. Mrs. Sutton was the daughter of Richard Bishop. She was born in England, and came to this city with her father and his family in 1S0S. Mr. Bishop, soon aftor his arrival, purchased a farm from Gen eral John Wilklns, who was Burgess of Pitts burg 100 years ago, and the father of the cele brated Judge William Wilkins. The farm lay j as t west of the Sharpsburg bridge, on the Pittsburg side of the river, and extended back from tbe river over the hillside. It was then known as tho "Albion Farm," and to this day the name Is still retained in the neighborhood. That is the Eighteenth ward flow, and the whole hill is known in local nomenclature as Mt. Albion, while the public school is desig nated by the Central Board as the Albion school. In the years afterward Mr. Bishop became a widely known resident and was in fluential in local affairs. On bis farm he en tertained the State Commissioners who sur veyed and laid out the Pennsylvania canal on tho other side of the Allegheny river. AS INTEEESTING EEMINISCKKCE. A few years ago workmen for the Standard Oil Company were excavating ground in the Eighteenth ward for the foundations of an oil tank. They unearthed a lot of bones. When Mrs. Sutton at that timcf aged, but still of very bright memory heard of the incident she related to the writer of this article the proba ble history of those bones. She said that in the year 1791 a family named Chambers removed to Pittsburg, which was then only a small town, and took up their residence somewhere in the vicinity of the present Court House. There was a small clearing in what was afterward the Albion farm, near tbe Sharpsburg bridge. All else between that and the old town of Pittsburg was unbroken forest Mr. Chambers purchased this in. the spring of the year and planted upon it a corn field. He did not move his family out to it, but only built a small log cabin in which he could obtain shelter while doing a couple of days' work. Mr. Chambers had two sons, who were some where in the neighborhood of 16 and 18 years of age. A young man named firadshaw, a nephew of Chambers, was also living with the family. In the summer of 1731 Mr. Chambers sent these three young men out to his small farm to do some work upon it. They were gone about a week, and when they returned they seemed to be much frightened, and told about seeing the Indians skulking about their cabin. The lather laughed at their fears. He said he desired them to return the next day (Mon day) and complete what they had been doing. They all pleaded earnestly to be allowed to stay at home, out Mr. Chambers was a stern old fellow, and would not favor the wishes of his sons and nephew. One of the former openly rebelled, saying he would rather die at home than be scalped by the Indians. The next day he ran awav. On Monday moraine young Bfadshaw and bis companion left to finish their work in their corn fields. AH INDIAN MASSACBE. The parents heard nothing more of them that week. On Saturday evening the son who had ran off returned home, and upon learning that his brother and cousin had not re turned started out to hunt them. By this time the mother bad become very anxious about them also, and she would not allow her other son to go to look for them alone, but accompanied him herself, it was a beautiful moonlight night, and they bad no difficulty whatever in getting over the five mile stretch of wooded country, which lay be tween their home and the little log but on the banks of the Allegheny. Upon arriving in sight of it they were greeted with a sicken ing odor, and a few steps more re vealed to them a horrible sight. Lying upon the ground close by the fence was the bloody and mangled form of young Bradshaw, and several yards distant was the corpse of Chambers also. From all appear ances the Indians had attacked them unawares and they had no opportunity to defend them selves. They were fast decomposing and bad evidently been killed several days. Mrs. Cham bers and her son went back home, and in the morning, with the aid of the late Mr. Sample, the gentleman who once owned all the proper ty now known as Mlllvale, opposite Lawrence ville, buried the two young men on the same Bpot they were killed. Their remains were wrapped only in a sheet, and their graves were marked by two small sandstone slabs. Years rolled on, and tho farm, after being much en larged, changed hands, evetually getting into Mr. Bishop's possession. Mrs. Sutton bad often seen the tombstones when out on the farm. A STEA1TOE VEBD7ICATIOK. Time soon obliterated all traces of where the graves ot young Chambers and Bradshaw lay, and all save a few ola residenters forgot the story of how they perished at the hands of the Indians. After the writer printed this story from Mrs. Sutton's lips, in one of the Pittsburg papers, it led to surprising results.. The further state ment had been made in the article at that time that the exact spot where the bodies had been interred was on the outskirts of the Standard barrel factory property. The same laborers who had dug up the bones happened to read Mrs. Sutton's story of their discovery. It in spired them to deeper search, and on the day after the publication of tbe article they ac tually found the identical tombstones spoken of by tbe old lady. They sent word to the writer, and an Investigation showed faint let tering and figuring on tbe stones which cor responded with tbe names and dates given by Mrs. Sufton. Thus, after the constant plowing of several different farmers, and the accumu lation of made-ground after the place was taken into a great city, the ancient stones themselves turned up to verify the lady's re markable memory r M0N0NGAHELA MINEES STILL.0UT, They Will Not Work for Hess Than Three Cents Per Bushel. At the Miners Convention held at Mo nongahela City, the following resolutions were adopted: Resolved, That we refuse to mine coal for less than 3 cents per bushel and semi-monthly pays. We request all miners to stay away from Albany. Umpire and Tremont mines in the Fourth pool until the district price is paid at said mines. We believe that our D. M. W. has used all honorable means to persuade them to cease work. We do pledgo ourselves that here after we will do all in our power to have tbe trade tax collected at the several mines at which we may chance to work. A FRER-POR-ALL FIGHT. One of the Participants Knocked Down and Cat With a Razor. Last night a fight was started in the house of Philip Murphy, a lamplighter who lives on Boquei street, Oakland. The trouble started over a dollar's indebtedness between Michael Toboca and Antbony Nostratia. Some one bit Toboca with a chair and knocked him down. While on tbe floor Nostratia cut him on the arm with a razor, making two ugly gashes. HORRIBLY BURNED. A Kiln Falls Down oa Two Dion, Covering Them With Hot Sand.

IUARSHELL, THE CASH GROCER, Will Save Yon Money. Some more "Plain Pacts." "We have been in business a little over two years, and have to-day the largest trade of any retail grocer in "Western Pennsylvania. Of course we have not made this trade without arousing the jealousy of other grocers. One grocer, who inherited his business from his father, seems to doubt our claim. If he means business, let him pub lish his affidavit, made before any magis trate, of his actual sales during the past three months, and I will do the same, if his sales are larger than mine I will forfeit 5100 to any charitable institution he may name. If my sales are larger than his he will forfeit the (100 to an institution I will name. "We may be mistaken, and "Plain Facts" may sell more than we do, but we are hon est in onr claim, and don't think he does. "We are ready to risk our little hundred dol lars on it, anyway. "Plain Facts" claims we advertise "lead ers" and charge more than he does for other goods. "We are not rich enough to buy a whole issue of the daily papers to use as a price list, so we must content ourselves with publishing a few prices. But we make this proposition: "We will compare our price list, printed the 1st of this month, with his price list of the same date, and, if our prices do not average lower than his, we will head our next advertisement by saying he (giving his name) "Sells Lower Than Marskell." If his prices average higher than mine, he is to head his next advertisement "Marshell Sells Lower Than ," giving his name. According to Sunday's Dispatch, some body wanted "plain facts." Now, we want to see if he has any sand in his craw. Come on, dear, let's have the facts. To the general public we would say if they want to satisfy themselves that we sell cheaper than anyone else send for our week ly price list and compare prices. Give me a trial; I will save you money.
